About Me

5 weeks trip to Taipeh, Seoul and Japan with my wonderful girlfriend starting in March. I'd gladly receive mail from people who know these places. Be it travel recommendations,host offers or spontaneous meet-ups. We're thrilled already.

I am now doing my masters degree and indulge in all the pleasant amenities of the life of a uni student to the fullest. Other than that I am enjoying life, learning different languages, hanging out with friends, engaging in a variety of sports, spending time with family or watching a good movie.

If you want to know more about me, please message or meet me sometime!
